Gorbadoc ‘BroadbeltBrandybuck

The generous host of Brandy Hall

Masters of Buckland

The son of Marmadoc Brandybuck, who inherited the title Master of Buckland from his father. Early in his time as Master, the Fell Winter descended, and White Wolves invaded the Hobbit-lands. He was renowned for his love of good food (hence, no doubt, his nickname 'Broadbelt'), and his generous hospitality. It was during one of his famous feasts that Frodo's parents Drogo and Primula were lost in a boating accident.
